The New Left's "Free" College Scam Isn't Smarter Than A Fifth Grader

"I call it like I see it, the government has orchestrated a big, fraudulent scam that harms our economy and puts young people in debt for years. Don’t let them get away with it." -- Daisy Belden

Robert Reich Suffers From a Lack of Imagination

President Bill Clinton's former Labor Secretary Robert Reich is worried about the sharing economy. In a recent column, he bemoaned the fact that the rise of services like Uber and Lyft have initiated a shift away from salaried employment towards more independent contractors. The cost of this, he argued, is the security and stability of the American workforce, stripped of the labor protections government has installed for the benefit of the salaried employee. These protections, including retirement benefits, health insurance, and minimum wage requirements, are in Reich's view necessary to a healthy economy, and he fears that a shift away from them will prove catastrophic to America's future.

Bernie Sanders and the Climate Change Hostage Crisis

Devout socialist and communist sympathizer, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, announced on Monday an economically and constitutionally irresponsible scheme to "combat climate change and cut carbon emissions by more than 80% by 2050." Sanders' plan would impose a tax on carbon and prohibit extraction on federal lands.

Just Say No to Prescription Drug Price Controls

In a perverse misunderstanding of cause and effect, government regulators always seem to respond to their failures by calling for more of the same. If a policy fails to produce the desired effect, it must be because it didn’t go far enough. Education spending a failure? Spend more! Centralized health care costing too much? Centralize further! The ability to admit a mistake and reverse a bad policy seems to be one that government employees do not possess.

Gridlock Is No Longer The Way to Restrain Government

The phrase "do nothing Congress" has historically been used as an insult by those who want government to actually do things. To libertarians, however, and those of us who think that the government which governs best, governs least, gridlock has always been a source of comfort. Whenever one party becomes too dominant, the ability to ram through major initiatives without opposition is worrying. Since major forces in both parties basically want to expand government in different ways, it is only disagreement over specifics that keeps Big Brother in check.

U.S. Telecom Association v. FCC Could be Dangerous for Consumers

Today, the federal appeals court in Washington will begin to hear arguments regarding Obama’s net neutrality rule and whether or not the government should have the ability to micromanage the internet. As it would stand under the administration’s new rule, the government would have expanded capabilities to step in and add numerous burdensome regulations to the internet. This could pose many problems to businesses that range anywhere from substantial cost hikes to increased uncertainty in the economy; thus leading to curtailed innovation and less new products being introduced to the marketplace.

The FDA’s Looming Regulatory Onslaught Threatens the Freedom to Vape

Americans who are trying to kick their nasty smoking habit have found healthier alternatives in e-cigarettes and vapor products that could, quite literally, save their lives. But the bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration are trying to put this $3.5 billion industry out of business.

When Regulations Are More Trouble Than They're Worth

While the recent Republican debates have sparked lively discussions of tax and spending problems, many candidates have also highlighted the economic drag of regulation. This is important: Regulations have an annual cost of more than $1 trillion and have a significant impact on investment, innovation and economic growth. Rather than shackling the economy with new ones, Washington should conduct a comprehensive review of the regulatory burden with an eye towards eliminating redundant and obsolete mandates.

Biosimilars Bring Much-Needed Competition to Drug Markets

The high cost of medical care is one of the issues that most directly affect individuals and families. Historically, high initial investments in capital and a strict regulatory regime have effectively limited competition in many sectors of the medical industry. But thanks to advances in technology and a changing regulatory environment, some of that is starting to change.
